What is Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Why Does it Matter?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a type of computer technology that allows machines to perform tasks that would normally require human intelligence. These machines can learn from experience, adapt to new information, and make decisions based on data. AI technology is being used increasingly in our daily lives, from chatbots and voice assistants to self-driving cars and recommendation systems.

But what makes AI so powerful and why is it important? Let’s take a quick look at some key reasons why AI matters.

Improved decision-making

AI can help us make better decisions by analysing large amounts of data and providing insights and predictions. For example, AI algorithms can analyse financial data to help investors make more informed decisions about which stocks to buy or sell.

Automation of repetitive tasks

AI can automate tasks that are repetitive and time-consuming, freeing up human workers to focus on more creative and strategic tasks. For example, AI can automate routine data entry tasks or to monitor and manage inventory levels in a warehouse.

Enhanced customer experiences

AI can personalize customer experiences and provide faster and more efficient customer service. For example, chatbots can answer customer questions and resolve issues quickly and accurately.

Increased efficiency

AI can help businesses streamline their operations and reduce costs by automating tasks and optimizing workflows. For example, AI can be used to monitor and manage supply chain operations or to schedule and route delivery trucks more efficiently.

Understanding is more than Luck…

Now that we understand the importance of AI, let's look at various types of AI.

Expert Systems or Rule-Based

This type of AI is based on a set of predefined rules or decision trees created and programmed by human experts. These rules guide the AI system to make decisions based on specific conditions or inputs. For example, a rule-based AI system can help to diagnose medical conditions based on a patient's symptoms.

Machine Learning (ML)

Machine learning is a type of AI that uses algorithms to learn patterns and insights from data. Training ML algorithms utilizes large datasets, and they use statistical techniques to identify patterns and make predictions. For example, ML algorithms can predict which customers are most likely to churn or to detect fraudulent transactions.

Deep Learning (DL)

Deep learning is a subfield of machine learning that uses neural networks to learn and recognize complex patterns in data. Deep learning algorithms can be applied to tasks such as image and speech recognition. For example, deep learning algorithms can recognize faces in photos or to transcribe speech into text.

Natural Language Processing (NLP)

NLP is a type of AI that focuses on the interaction between humans and computers using natural language. Chatbots, voice assistants, and other applications that require the ability to understand and generate human language often use NLP. For example, NLP can analyse customer feedback to identify common issues and improve customer service.


Robotics is a branch of AI that focuses on the development of machines that can perform tasks autonomously or with minimal human intervention. A variety of applications, including manufacturing, healthcare, and transportation all use robotic AIs. For example, robots can assemble products in a factory or to perform surgery in a hospital.

No matter your task, AI is an important and rapidly evolving technology that has the potential to transform our work in many ways. By understanding the different types of AI and their capabilities, you can make informed decisions about how to leverage AI in your business.

We formally started work on Artificial Intelligence in 1991, so with over a quarter of a century of experience, we’re pioneers.
